Windy Hill Farm House
Originally built as a granary in the late 1800’s, the Windy Hill Farm House has undergone numerous renovations. It was first lived in around 1929, after the original farmhouse and summer kitchen burned to the ground. In 1931 the family moved off the farm and it was not until TWFM was given the property that it was used for lodging again. Groups would come here from the Twin Cities and surrounding areas and use this old building as a “Retreat House.” The front porch was built on in the early 1970’s and the back screen porch was added later.
The Windy Hill Farm House homestead is the setting for the award-winning mystery novel book series written by our friend, Lois Walfrid Johnson, titled “The Adventures of the Northwoods.” There are 10 great books in this series that teach history and Godly character in the early 1900’s time period. These are great books for both young and old alike. Check them out at Lois Walfrid Johnson Books.
In June of 2004 the Windy Hill Farm House went through another renovation. All new electrical wiring was put in, the screen porch was closed in with real windows and insulated for year-round use, the sleeping areas were redone and new roofing was put on the whole building.
Group Cabin Policies apply to any Group Cabins reserved by a group. Our definition of a “group” is a group of people who are mostly not an immediate family consisting of a dad, mom and their immediate children. In other words, they are affiliated by organization, not necessarily related. Example: youth group, church group, young adults, organized club, scouts, etc.
Family Cabin Policies apply to any Family Cabins reserved by a family. Our definition of a “family” is simply that unit made up of Dad and/or Mom and their own immediate children. For example, 2 brothers and their wives and children would be considered 2 families.
